Below are examples of some of the products I released successfully as Associate Producer and Producer for The Learning Company. Each of these projects encompassed a wide variety of tasks. These could include such tasks as proofreading and editing of program content, documentation, and packaging; producing scheduling and time lines for the project cycle; construction of pre -parameters before the start of the project; legal issues and copyright information; in-depth reporting of project progress and problems to senior management; construction of testing suites; final sign-off on all aspects of final product; compiling and shipping of final Gold Master CD and documentation files to manufacturing.

Another large part of my job as Producer was the coordination of various personnel and departments, such as legal, marketing, engineering, artist, directors of R&D, testing, quality assurance, editorial, and manufacturing.

Most of the products I produced were very rich in multimedia content. This called for technical knowledge in a wide range of computer skills like video, audio, text, help systems, computer operating systems, computer architectures, internet and web development, software installation procedures, hybrid CD formats, software testing, and quality assurance.
